Found a nice spot to sit since I tore my rotator cuff and am nervous about climbing and put a broken stand there as a seat. The plan was to be there in the morning and elsewhere in the afternoon.
What is nice about the spot is its on the side of a bowl- and lots of cover to my left and right.
I saw him come out to my left and picked up the crossbow. Every time he was in a clearing, his right foot was back. He went behind a tree about 18 yards directly in front of me, and he stepped out, with the right leg forward!
I heard the nice clean pass through shot; and he turned to look at his side as if "What just hit me?" He looked up hill, saw me, and bolted; if you can call it that.
It was more like the slow lope or canter of a horse when its just having fun relaxing. It went up hill, over a log, around the bowl and came back toward me about 50 yards directly across from where I shot it.
It was a double lung shot, so I'm really surprised he went that far. He fell right behind a beautiful moss covered tree on an old logging road.
I'll post more pics when I get better service- most likely tomorrow. 2 bars doesn't work so well.
